Vou Falar de Ti a Toda a Gente — Francisco Monteiro Lopes / Teatro Gíria

October 25 - November 6

Vou Falar de Ti a Toda a Gente — Francisco Monteiro Lopes / Teatro Gíria

Death often carries an idea of an end. But what if it’s just another phase of a cycle? Three young people have the same goal: to hold a friend’s funeral. At this moment, doubts, conflicts and identity issues arise, fueled by the fact that everyone has known their friend in different ways. Can those who stay put aside egos and personal beliefs, agreeing on a fair way to honor the departed? Confronted with the imperfection of the life cycle, the characters go through a process of trying to make it more perfect, looking for equality, dreams, and hope to be within everyone’s reach.

In this show there is a parallel between reality and fiction, in which the characters join the actors and creators in the search for the best way to honor a friend.
